@duckhp Thanks. I'm still optimistic the internet can be made a better place, and there certainly seem to be lots of others with that aim too. The difficulty is that, in this new dark age of digital feudalism, the internet lords have amassed mind bogglingly large cash reserves to defend their fiefdoms, and they are supported by vast numbers of vassals who have a vested interest in maintaining the status quo (SEO practitioners, people who work in the AdTech industry, etc.)
